Toronto is fantastic! Best Skyline in Canada for me. Toronto is one of my favorite skylines in the western hemisphere. Calgary, although it does seem a bit strange at the amount of twins it has, has a stunning skyline, one of the best. Vancouver has an incredible setting. Even though many designs of the towers are dull, this seems to be changing fast and looks incredible at night. Montreal has a very nice balanced skyline. Winnipeg has a sweet skyline
Completely agree with this ranking. Up until recently, I would have ranked Calgary at 4th but I've been keeping up with The Bow's progress recently and that has made me realize that Calgary's skyline is more impressive and extensive than I had previously given it credit for. I've also been really impressed by Winnipeg and the amount of high quality developments that they've been having there for the last several years.

1. Toronto (is there really any unbiased argument against? There's no competition whatsoever)
2. Montreal (some nice modernism, but lacking height; an attractive skyline)
3. Calgary (relatively impressive magnitude for a city of its size, but I find a lot of the architecture on the ghastly side)
4. Vancouver (impressive breadth; individually, bland as dishwater, and no height)

Is the Bow River really greenish-blue like that? It looks very inviting.

Toronto clearly has the best skyline in Canada. Anyone who says otherwise is either

A: Biased

B: Blind

C: Retarded

I would say out of the top 4 skylines the three that are debatable are Vancouver, Montreal, and Calgary.

So no one can have personal opinion, and if he does, he would be called rather biased, blind or retarted, because you make the choice for the others.

I'm only being half serious. Obviously everyone is going to have their own opinion on the subject, but in my mind the top spot in Canada is not even debatable.

Keep it friendly, guys! This is more just a chance to see some nice photos of our skylines. The poll thing is just for fun, as of course everyone can have a different opinion!

hey boyz, what about me? ... the only skyscrapers I can see are just a few " highrises" in either The Hague or Rotterdam or Amsterdam Zuid As ! tallest in Amsterdam is 32 I suppose, tallest in Rotterdam is 42! and they are by far not that interesting or beautiful.

Praise the Lord, Praise your City! Praise your beautiful skylines! .... I am dying here, no skyscrapers at all. Make me happy with your pictures... YieHaw!
